I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

You will probably find it is a problem with the switch on the brake pedal.
Get your self a cheap multi meter from an electronics store. Set it to meaure ohms. This is used to check if a connection is complete.
Take the wires off the switch on the brake pedal and test if the connection is open or closed. Push the pedal and check the connection again.
If the switch only had one wire then the negative connection is made to the body of the car. Put one probe of the volt against bare metal of the body somewhere and the other agains the terminal of the switch and test again.
This should tell you if the switch is broken. if the switch is good then you probably have a short circut somewhere between the brake lights and the switch. That is something has pinched or other wise broken the wire and it is touching metal of the car. You will have to follow the wires as best you can and look for damage.
Hope this helps

Theres a standard amongst most stereos, so if these colors apply, then you will be right,
Red is Ignition power
orange is direct power
Black is earth
blue is for phone
White is for electric arial
then there will be four coloured wires with matching color trace wires, these are the speaker wires.
Hope this gets you going, good luck.

this sounds like a thermostat fault, but also could be the sensor switch to the radiator but is more likely the thermostat, it should be located at the front top of engine, follow the top water hose to the engine and you will find the thermostat housing, also just a heads up, these had a problem when first made, according to the known fixes and problems with VW's the hoses corroded inside and started loosing water, this could be wise to get the system presure checked to...hope this helps
